The 2016 model year for the C7 Corvette Stingray and Z06 has come to an end. Now, we soldier into 2017, where the 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport will likely receive quite a bit of love. But, first, we have the breakdown of the 2016 model year C7 Corvette.
The National Corvette Museum has compiled the information, and in total, 40,689 Corvettes were produced for 2016. Of those, 52.6 percent were Stingray coupes, while 28.4 percent were Z06 coupes. Convertibles saw lesser numbers; 12.4 percent were Stingray convertibles, while only 6.7 percent were Z06 convertibles.
For the coupe, the 2LT package was the most popular trim, but the 3LZ package rang in as most popular for the Z06.
The 2016 model year brought with it a handful of unique design packages, and if you own one of the following, you have a rare Corvette. 371 Corvettes were outfitted with the Twilight Blue package, 535 received Spice Red trimmings and only 454 left Bowling Green with the Jet Black Suede package.
As for the limited C7.R edition, 570 found homes. 500 were earmarked for the U.S., while 150 were sent off to other global markets. 570 of these special Corvettes were coupes, and the other 80 convertibles.
Regarding colors, white and black dominated. No surprise there.
Arctic White was most popular with 21% followed by Black (17%), Torch Red (15%), Shark Gray (12%), Laguna Blue (9%), Long Beach Red (8%), Corvette Racing Yellow (7%), Blade Silver (6%), Daytona Sunrise Orange (2%), Night Race Blue (2%) and even though it was not available until very late in the model year, Admiral Blue still snagged 1% (or 336 cars).
Now, with this information, you may want to think twice before seeing your Corvette off in the future. It could be worth something much more one day.
